    try the little paperclip thingy, it will ask you to choose a file. Have those shots readily available on your desktop and choose them one by one. and then select 'upload'. Godspeed, vic.;)

    You can host the images for free at

    they also will resize the images you want to your liking (if you select that option) and give you a url to insert for the forum.

    i'm not allowed to tell you what to do with all this wonderful equipment due to the family oriented nature of this site. (wink, wink...) On google i think it's pronounced 'pron'. Congratulations and godspeed.:D

    The long cord is for when you are more than 4ft or so from a power outlet... that is why there are 2 ways to plug it in... it is convenient for when you are further away.

    As a student, the power adapter minus the long cord is a godsend as the wire wraps up nicely around the adapter and is perfect for the desktop power cords lecture classrooms have :)

    quite possibly the best powercord idea ever, and I have yet to see another laptop with one. (not talking about the build of the powercord, I know there have been fraying problems etc lately) but the design that allows you to change it from an extension cord to just the brick is awesome IMO.

    I have the long cord wired through my desk and into my powerstrip so when my computer is at home i hook it up to that, but when i bring it with me, instead of having to have an extra cord or take thewhole thing out of my powerstrip and through the holes in my desk and all that nonsense I just have to slide the brick off and take it with me and the little extra piece i keep in my bag. It works GREAT and is quite a time and space saver :) Hurrah for apple :)

    I also have not had any major probs. 1 time the camera dint work and I had to restart it, and one time the track pad dint work and I had to resatrt it. Both probs were fixed. I like the keyboard, love the screen, i love the OS and I think the sound in the laptop is very good.

    And pretty awesome for dossing rather than listening to the inane bs coming out of a lecturers mouth sometimes.

    What does SR refer to?
